Big news today from the Capitol! Republic Records announced that the soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 is now available for pre-order. They also revealed the almost-full track listing and cover artwork for the long awaited soundtrack. There’s a wide range of musicians featured on the album, from indie artists to hip-hop artists. I for one cannot wait to hear Kanye West’s rework of Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat.” We’ll also have to wait a little while longer for the last track on the album to be revealed, but we can spend that time predicting which artist will be the last to complete the album. Sound off on your predictions in the comments section below!
